Time did the right thing today by awarding #TimePersonOfTheYear to journalists. It inspired me to look back at how @UN_SPExperts have emphasized the epidemic of attacks on journalists/ism just this year
following are just some of the attacks on journalists we highlighted. a core fact is that most attacks, and most abuses of human rights, are not held accountable.
the @Time 'award' takes place against the backdrop of @realDonaldTrump's attacks on truth

Thread-> Assassinated Media Man Raed al-Fares: “This uprising was a Media Uprising in the beginning”

Raed was direct recipient of State Dept. funding for his Radio station & other media activity. Important to remember this U.S. initiative started almost immediately after Sep 11
2-This "Freedom Agenda" intended to ‘broaden’ the US approach to ME reform by addressing issues like ‘freedom from fear’.It was situated at State’s Bureau of Near East Affairs (NEA), it was sesigned to be a flexible enjoying a high degree of independence from bureaucratic control
3-To fund these programs, MEPI (main vehicle) originally (2002) relied on emergency supplemental appropriations from Congress which combined into a total of $119 million, but by FY2008 the program received a cumulative funding of $497.7 m (Obama would add another $355 m by 2015)

On the 3rd Wednesday of November in 2011,near Tahrir, #Egyptian riot police beat me,broke my left arm & right hand,sexually assaulted me & their supervising officer threatened me with gang rape.Reading awful news, today, about #Saudi feminists’ torture & sexual assault is gutting
I was detained for 6hrs by Interior ministry & 6 by Military Intelligence during which I was blindfolded and interrogated and denied medical attention. My arms were in casts for 3 months after. Reading Trump today so casually siding w/ a tyrant who killed a journalist is gutting
I keep trying to imagine what would have happened had Trump been in office when #Egyptian police and the military detained me. I

#OSHO #hypnosis

The #unconscious #mind is nine times bigger than the #conscious; it has tremendous treasures, all the memories of your past.

Below the unconscious, there is the collective unconscious. One can descend into the collective unconscious also with somebody’s help.
The master of Mystery School will take you slowly towards the unconscious and the collective #unconscious.

In your collective unconscious, you have memories of your #PastLives as animals, as birds.
Below the collective unconscious is the #cosmic #unconscious.

Slowly, slowly one can go deeper and deeper, and the cosmic unconscious has #memories of your being trees, rosebushes, stones.

At the start of this story I wrote that I was SURE #Khashoggi had been told “by someone he trusted״ that it was safe to go to the Istanbul consulate. That he was observant & no fool.
Khalid told Khashoggi, a contributing columnist to The Washington Post, that he should go to the Saudi consulate in Istanbul to retrieve the documents and gave him assurances that it would be safe to do so."
this is Saudi Arabia's Ambassador to the US - who then said "the reports that suggest that Jamal Khashoggi went missing in the Consulate in Istanbul or that the Kingdom’s authorities have detained him or killed him are absolutely false"

When I was Reuters #Cairo correspondent covering Mubarak presidency, my press card was confiscated by his security bec I didn’t stand up when he entered restaurant. Reuters called press office to return it & they were told “Tell Mona to stand up next time” nyti.ms/2DcHu2L
At the beginning of every news conference, Information Minister would have out questions for state-owned media journalists who Mubarak would call on 1st so that they would field those questions i.e. propaganda to him.That’s what Trump would call “respect.” That’s what Trump wants
I would always yell out my questions until Mubarak finally paid attention to the rest of us who were not with state-owned media. He used to call me the “troublemaker from Reuters.” That’s what Trump wants.

A thread on statement made by #Egyptian politicians criticizing the #Copts for taking unnecessary risk in visiting their monastery. First and foremost it is a cruel attempt to blame the victims rather than hold officials responsible 1/6
These politicians would rather the #Copts abandoned their faith and ways in order not to trouble the #Egyptian government with doing its job. This is weird logic at best and is at the heart of the country's persistent underdevelopment 2/6
These politicians practice a soft form of supremacist thinking, much like the Islamists In fact, the issue is not binary, those who favor exterminating the #Copts and those who do not. Rather it is a spectrum of where on the scale of oppression they fall. 3/6

Details on #Khashoggi affair:
News coming out from #Turkey that President @RT_Erdogan is still hot on the affair, presenting a large list of demands to #SaudiArabia and the #USA, including compensation for the devaluation of the Turkish lira and support to #Qatar and #Egypt MB +
#Turkey has received Khaled al-Faysal 4 times and was agreed to invest $30 bn in the country. In addition, there are tens of Fethullah Gülen in #SaudiArabia that #Riyadh will have to "deal with" to please #Ankara.

#CIA Director didn't listen to the Saudi conversation between the consulate & MBS head office but it seems MBS was also present and his voice seems clear in the taped conversation. Saoud al-Kahtani denied MBS's presence during #Khashoggi's interrogation

Glad #Saudi troll farms & their connection to Saudi regime have been studied. I’ve experienced plenty attacks for my writing on women’s issues in #Saudi & my opposition to #Yemen war: 1 of most coordinated came after #Jamalkhashoggi shared 1 of my articles nytimes.com/2018/10/20/us/…
In February, #JamalKhashoggi kindly shared the Arabic version of an oped I wrote for Washington Post about #MosqueMeToo which I started for Muslim women to talk about sexual harassment and assault in Sacred spaces, including Hajj in Makkah, #Saudi Arabia
Immediately after Jamal shared my column, i was inundated with one of the worst and most coordinated attacks by #Saudi regime trolls I have ever experienced. For days. It was a window into how much shit he and other Saudis who are critical got and continue to get.

#SRO - Interesting how some find themselves estonished about #KSA Khashoggi affair... Remember #KSA was one of last #Assad regime supporters in 2011. The kingdom was supporting regime (its supporters forgeting it, strangely) when all others arab states declared it criminal (1).
#SRO - During the 2011 first months of brutal killings of thousands of protesters by regime soldiers and shabihas, #KSA took the stance to be "neutral", watching the massacre without any problem : and for sure, most of those killed could vote, a day, for Muslim Brotherhood (2).
#SRO - When #Turkey and #Qatar began to act in june - july 2011, #KSA refused to follow. But when armed struggle began with army defector and some MB linked groups about to fight #KSA was seeing its enemies (Muslim Brotherhood) about to take another country (after #Egypt) (3).

I have barely slept.I have been unable to stop thinking about #JamalKhashoggi. I knew him from when we both were columnists for #Saudi-owned Asharq al-Awsat b4 I was banned.We met just once, I think. But reports yest of his killing came same day as #Kavanaugh & my worlds collided
Trump has emboldened so many dictators,esp Crown Prince Mohamed Bin Salman.With so much attention been sucked up by US,the killing of Jamal,who wasn’t an esp outspoken critic,is sure to embolden regimes further & signal to dissidents & opponents that their harm will go unnoticed
To think that you could go to your country’s consulate to get paperwork for an upcoming wedding and be killed and dismembered because of your writing is horrific. It’s evil. And to know that the regime responsible for that has a best friend in the most powerful country in earth!

Look what Trump does to a female reporter part one
Look what Trump does to a female reporter part two
That female reporter who jumped in willingly to ask a “question on trade” after Trump shut down the female reprter asking a question about Kavanaugh: shame on you! When you see a fellow reporter demeaned & shut down like that, ask the Q Trump refuses to answer until he answers!

Court in #Egypt sentence women rights advocate #AmalFathy for 2.5 years for 'Fake News' after sharing sexual harassment experience via Facebook post. #FreeAmalFathy #FreeAmalFathy theguardian.com/world/2018/sep…
The conviction of Amal Fathy comes after Egypt clamped down on women who complain of sexual assault. Simply reporting rape or assault can land women in prison and labeled as terrorists. #FreeAmalFathy on.wsj.com/2NMhKk6
“In a UN survey in 2013, 99% of Egyptian women reported that they had experienced some form of sexual harassment. Cairo was described as the “most dangerous megacity in the world for women” in a 2017 Thomson Reuters Foundation poll.” . #FreeAmalFathy gu.com/p/9ga2n/stw

I lived in #Egypt when Anita Hill testified in 1991. Being in the US as Christine Blasey Ford is testifying is making obvious what I’ve been thinking since we first heard from CBF. And this is going to be another of my threads about white American women.
I have to wonder # how many white American women in 1991 were able to distance themselves from Anita Hill because she is Black? Because now the woman testifying is white and blonde. And that is an essential Q to my threads: where have white women been all this time?
Because if you are just now horrified at the way patriarchy enables and protects sexual predators, what America have you been living in? Because white, rich patriarchy has enabled and protected sexual violence against Black women for centuries.

The amount of crap and baseless claims that #AssociatedPress #AP is filling in into the mainstream media is unbelievable, especially regarding #Yemen !
#UAE’s heroic #counterterrorism operations in #Yemen against #AlQaeda are well spoken and praised by the #US Forces; but our friends at #AP are so happy to debunk those live operations and efforts easily !
US Forces and defense sec. didn’t call us the #LittleSparta for no reason; we fought like warriors in the face of #Iran’s terror, presented sacrifices of our men, saved poor #Yemeni children, and rebuilt the south of #Yemen !

مصر في الحرب العالمية الاولي (٢)
الوضع الاقتصادي و الاجتماعي
اغلب المعلومات مقتبسة من كتاب د.لطيفة محمد سالم استاذ التاريخ.

-صورة ملونة لعمال صينيين في احد المعسكرات البريطانية بمصر عام ١٩١٧.
#MASRZAMAN
في تلك الحقبة تعددت القوي الاجتماعية علي ارض مصر و كثرت الجنسيات الاجنبية بشكل استثنائي فهناك اليونانيون و الايطاليون و الفرنسيون و الالمان و بالطبع الانجليز.

استحوذت البريطانيون علي اهم المناصب في الحكومة المصرية انذاك.
ففي البيان المقدم من عدة وزارات في الحكومة المصرية للجنة ملنر بعد ثورة ١٩١٩ تبين ان نسبة استحواذ المصريين علي المناصب المهمة لا يتعدي ال٢٥٪.

ففي وزارات المالية و المعارف و الاشغال و الزراعة و المواصلات مثلا كان نصيب المصريين من الوظائف الكبيرة ٣١ مقابل ١٦٨ يتقلدها بريطانيون.

From the beginning, Zionists advocated a "Jewish State" not just in #Palestine, but also in #Jordan, southern #Lebanon, and the #GolanHeights as well.
As it will be proved from the quotes below:

#Palestinians are not indigenous to #Palestine👈This propaganda has no other purpose than 2 further dehumanize Palestinians & justify #Israel’s ongoing ethnic cleansing & murder
In #BenGurion own words👇😡you'll see how that outrageous claim is far removed from historical reality
“We must expel the Arabs and take their places…”~#DavidBenGurion
Born in 1886 as David Green (Gruen) in Plonsk, #Poland. He is considered one of the three founding figures of Zionism beside #ChaimWeizmann & #Herzl.
